Wear has written what I believe to be an unbiased, objective book, for someone who was close to the Obama administration. He includes stories, humor, and anecdotes. This book is part memoir / biography and it is also a call to action for Christians. Wear served President Obama in faith based outreach in the White House and in his Presidential campaign. Wear describes himself as a Conservative Christian Democrat. Something I don't think we hear of very often.
Wear sees the convergence of politics and religion and embraces it. He actually is optimistic about the future. He is not a black and white thinker, instead he calls for the people, especially Christians to embrace and both / and partnership between the church and government. It is a different way to look at the church and politics, but one which has merit.
This was a well written book and helpful to read as well.
I received this book from booklook bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
